Central Rome (within walking/rolling distance to Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, and Pantheon)

The best hotel area for electric wheelchair users and mobility scooter users is to stay in the very center of Rome. There are few accessible public transportation options in Rome, and staying in Central Rome will allow disabled visitors to roll to nearly all of the tourist sites without paying for an expensive Rome wheelchair taxi. The Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, and the Spanish Steps are all found in this neighborhood. The Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Vatican are within walking/rolling distance.
